But there are many children who are “caught up” in the orphan crisis who don’t need to be. And there are many families ripped apart by poverty, injustice and as we’ll see more later, trafficking that could be kept whole and given the support to grow and heal and remain together. For that to happen, we need to acknowledge three things: Not all children in orphanages are orphans.  Many parents bring their children to an orphanage ONLY because they can’t see a way for them to provide for their children.  Help the parents overcome the obstacles and families will flourish.   Ignore the families and the cycle will continue.
